This is a long time after the original post, but Cleopatra was not cut for the West End! The UK release, including the Dominion Tottenham Court Road, was the 3hr 12 min. version rather than the original 4hr 8min cut. As far as I know the longer version was never shown theatrically in the UK, but can be enjoyed in all its glory on Blu-ray.

I think South Pacific ran for well over 3 years I saw it there in 1958.

An interesting bit of inf I came across…before the West End Cinema closed, the screening of CLEOPATRA was cut by about 45 minutes because the length of the film would not have allowed people to see it all without missing the last bus! Does anyone else remember this? Does anyone remember how long SOUTH PACIFIC ran there?
